ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) and BLS (Basic Life Support) courses at Southlake
The Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) course is designed to teach the skills needed to assess and administer care within the first 10 minutes of an adult cardiac arrest.
Southlake is proud to offer ACLS and BLS in accordance with Heart and Stroke Foundation. All courses are overseen by ACLS and BLS instructors accredited by the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Providers learn the skills needed to manage advanced cardiac life support scenarios: respiratory emergency, various types of cardiac arrest (simple VT/VF, complex VT/VF, PEA (Pulseless Electrical Activity) and asystole), pre-arrest emergencies: stable and unstable bradycardia and tachycardia, acute coronary syndromes and stroke.
Courses are run in accordance with the most recent iteration of the Canadian Resuscitation and First Aid Guidelines. This reflects current best practice and is in conjunction with the Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSF) as a member of the International Liason Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR).
